There are many reasons for this but one of the biggest is that as parents we have a right to be notified if our children are being exposed to head lice.

Go back to previous Head Lice Procedure. That policy had a lot of good proactive points which included notifying parents when lice was found in their child's class room. This is important so parents can do extra self-check procedures and remind their children on things they should or should not be doing. The new procedure is completely reactive and will cause a larger infestation.
